I'm happy that this exists, but since my earphones fall out relatively often (ie more than never) I think this might be doomed just because it's not OK to easily lose your very expensive electronic device. Wire to carry signal might be old fashioned, but it also has a job as a tether.

Yet another form of near-field radiation being transmitted across the brain.
Not to seem paranoid.
I'm afraid you failed.
This isn't really the right website to start talking about 'harmful' rf radiation without any sort of proof.
Legally demonstrable Harm was inflicted in this case? What, the girls had their own business of selling their body and this cut into their profits?
What a world you live in, where the only possible harm is financial.
Meanwhile, there is this PC platform that wiped out all of it's other bespoke competitors probably before you even touched your first computer. PCs are MUCH more diverse than Android phones. But if you started whining about "fragmentation" to PC developers they would look at you like you grew a second head.
Hoorah. It's absurd, the only people who worry about fragmentation are the analysts than have never seen software development before the iPhone existed. Actual developers have been dealing with this 'problem' for decades.
The second one is definitely bad: Several versions of the OS having significant marketshare means extra work for developers, and fewer apps for users (since some require a version newer than you have). Windows Phone and iOS are much better than Android in this.
Yeah... don't worry about it. As a dev, this isn't ideal because you can't use the latest toys across all devices, but in normal use it just means you work to a somewhat-less-than-latest API and don't worry about it. The backwards/forwards compatibility is good.
The last thing the PC is, is fragmented.
PCs have standard hardware interfaces for things like, you know, booting an OS. Accessing your framebuffer. System busses.
Android devices have none of this. Every device, every ARM SoC is roll-your-own and almost never documented. (Just ask the cyanogen devs what they think about fragmentation. Protip: Wear earplugs)
I call *your* bullshit. For an app developer (or a game developer) all of this is hidden under the Android APIs. If Android really was this much of a problem for developers then nothing would get done, rather than the real-life situation where Android is no slower to develop on than iPhone.
You're right from a OS perspective, but that is not the problem of app developers.
"A more important question would be whether cost-per-apprehension is even a valid metric for the Border Patrol. "
:blink: That is probably the only valid metric for them. Well that and the accuracy of the determined status, and the treatment of those apprehended...
Better yet, stop pretending your body is some special butterfly that will cause the sky to fall and dogs to make love to cats should somebody actually get a look at it. The whole body paranoia thing is a society wide neurosis. At best. You look very similar to everyone else. The more you take off, the more that's true.
That may be true for you or me, but it is absolutely not your place to tell anyone else what their attitude to their own body is. The right to privacy is fucking important, and we should not just wish it away because it's more convenient, or assume other people are being unreasonable by not wanting their wishes violated.
Until it tries to uphold it.
In what possible conceivable way is your free speech being curtailed by not allowing you to post stolen nude photos of other people? Some people shout "free speech" at anything. Newsflash cocksucker: your right to self expression does not cover actively harming other people.
